Privacy

The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP) provides a right of access to records held by public bodies. At the same time, it protects the personal privacy of Albertans by controlling the manner in which a public body manages their personal information.

The Occupational Health and Safety Act in Section 28.1 states:

“The Minister may, in order to enhance the protection of workers and the prevention of work site injuries by encouraging good and discouraging bad work site safety records,

  1. establish indices and measurements of work site injury prevention,
  2. maintain a register consisting of the names of employers and their performance, as determined by the Minister, in relation to those indices and measurements,
  3. publish, or authorize a department or agency of the Government or any other entity to publish, the information contained in that register, and
  4. collect any information needed for that register from another public body that provides the information to the Minister.”

Alberta Labour applies confidentiality rules to all data that are released or published, to prevent the publication or disclosure of any information deemed confidential.
